HISTORIC 'COTTAGE AT THE COVE' AT LOVER'S POINT - RETREAT AND RELAX!

Pacific Grove Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Delightful historic 1884 cottage: 1 bedroom, 1 bath, library - sleeps 2

Cottage at the Cove is a lovely 1884 vintage Victorian located just steps from Lover's Point park and beach. The oceanfront recreation trail leads you to the Point Pinos Lighthouse to the west and the Monterey Bay Aquarium (2 passes included) and Cannery Row to the east. The wonderful Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is just around the corner. A 3 block walk to town will find you in the midst of Pacific Grove friendliness: shops for any and all necessities/frivolities, antiques and curios, grocery store, pharmacy, banks, bookstore, delightful restaurants and bakeries, library, museum, art galleries, historical gardens, various parks, and the four screen movie theater. Pacific Grove is a town without stoplights, still! Park your car at the cottage and enjoy Pacific Grove by foot.

Cottage at the Cove's broad sunny front porch with wicker furniture is the perfect spot to begin the day with coffee or tea. The charming rear garden is intimate and lovely.

Suitability:
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stepping into your blue and white heritage cottage sent me into my grandmother’s world. Her similarly appointed Seattle home had a kitchen and back porch much like yours, and she grew geraniums, hydrangea, and morning glory in her back yard. Remembering the cool overcast days of Seattle and trips to Puget Sound beaches added to the feeling I was in grandma’s world. When my husband joined me three days later, he marveled at the warmth the cottage provides with its endless collectibles and artifacts. We both appreciated the two signed serigraphs in the kitchen, “Red Ripe” and “Back Porch.”

We’ve been to Pacific Grove for a weekend every year, but this was the first stay in a real home. Thank you so much for sharing your beach home with us.

Wonderful and Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5
"We enjoyed our stay at this wonderful cottage. This was a much needed respite from the valley heat and a great way to spend our anniversary. The owner has so many things to discover within the cottage - books, artworks, artifacts. Every amenity one could need in a home away from home is provided.
We enjoyed sitting by the fireplace, sipping wonderful wine (provided by the owner) and having dessert from the Bakeri.
The owner's hospitality and concern to every detail is appreciated."

This cute, well appointed, clean and well cared for cottage was everything we hoped for in a great location, within walking distance to restaurants, shops and Lovers Point Park and beach. Loved all the books and the special touches supplied by the wonderful home owner.

Lovely little cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Pacific Grove, staying in Barbara's cottage for four nights. We lived the little cottage and its location--a block to Lovers Point and a couple blocks to town. The cottage is clean, cute and well stocked. A nice note and bottle of wine greeted us. The bed was comfy, the towels fluffy, the fireplace cozy. We enjoyed the passes to the Aquarium, and rode bikes on the bike path, hit a bucket of balls at the driving range, walked to Pavels bakery every morning for a breakfast treat. We had a wonderful dinner at the Beach House (highly discounted if you go before 5:30), and walked to the movie one night. This is the perfect home base for adventuring around PG and we'll be back! Thank you, Barbara, for your hospitality.

I'm in Love with Cottage at the Cove

I'm in Love with Cottage at the Cove
  • 5 of 5
I cannot give this perfect little house enough stars! Barbara was an incredible host with a welcome bottle of wine and hand written note. This charming cottage was comfortable and the location was perfect. My mother spent three wonderful nights here. We loved being able to walk a few steps to Lover's Point and the Monterey Bay Recreational Trail. I rented a bike from Adventures by the Sea (at Lover's Point) and loved the early morning bike rides into Monterey and around to Alisomar State Park. We loved being close to the ocean and exploring the tide pools. My favorite thing was to sit on the lovely porch at the end of the day with a great California wine. Cottage at the Cove is perfect to explore Monterey, Carmel (do the Carmel Food Tour), and Carmel Valley.

I've stayed at a number of VRBO homes in California and this was by far my favorite place and I cannot wait to return. Thank you, Barbara, for an incredible experience.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
Great location in Pacific Grove, close to everything. Barbara provided a binder with great recommendations on restaurants and various things to do/see while you are there and the passes to the Monterrey Aquarium were an added bonus. Nicely equipped kitchen allows you to cook in if you want, and we did.Could not have asked for a better place. If/when we return to PG, we'll look to stay here first. Highly recommend this place.
